Somehow, despite how tired I was this first thing this morning, I found myself at Chris’ house all ready to go on another epic cycle ride along with Mike. Surely today would be more successful than last week’s ordeal which ended in a four+ mile walk.
We decided to go down the old railway line, cleverly known as the Castleman Trailway, until we got to Moors Valley Country Park which is an ideal location for cycling around. We arrived fairly swiftly and soon went on a loop around what is known as Crane Lake. This is a lovely little track which is tarmac and a joy to cycle around. I then found the start of the new “Through the Forest” cycle ride and stopped to investigate- perhaps a little too quickly as Chris came hurtling into the back of me. Fortunately no people or bicycles were harmed in this little incident and we decided that the Through the Forest route looked a good idea. I’m not really sure what we expected but the track wasn’t it anyway. It was a very narrow course that did literally run straight through the woodland, winding around trees and had rocks on either side of the path as well as the occasional little bridge and uphill section. The twistiness of the course meant that the three of us all crashed into various trees and rocks, or at least bashed our arms, handlebars, pedals or feet against them. And I nearly cycled into a ditch. We stopped half way along and had our lunches, which demonstrated how late we were respectively that morning. Mike had only had time to grab some rolls but not actually put anything in them whilst at least I had put ham in my sandwiches, choosing ham simply because you don’t need to spread it, therefore saving time. Spreadable ham would be a good idea though. Better send of a patent!
Anyway, with the help of some luck we survived the 7km trail and decided it would be an excellent idea to do it a second time, which we then did. It was then time to return home which took a little while because we were getting quite tired. I think we must have cycled just under fifteen miles in total today which is not bad going considering we were only out a few hours. I feel well and truly exercised.
I have little else to report on today so I think I shall play a little game. (Actually I did go to the dentist but it wasn’t as bad as usual so I can’t complain too much). It’s amazing how funny putting “in your pants” after song titles. I shall put my iTunes on shuffle and demonstrate.
